RHEL does not have an Icecast package itself.

It might be that your university IT deploys it with something like EPEL
For more details on EPEL and how it relates to e.g. RHEL please see:

Most importantly:

Follow "the distribution ways" for operating services.
In case of RHEL this will be systemd and using `systemctl` to control
start: systemctl start icecast
stop: systemctl stop icecast
status: systemctl status icecast

You need to use `sudo` or execute the above commands as root.

Note that if you have changed access rights, then things might fail now.
If in doubt, purge package and install clean.

Fedora and EPEL use a bind-address of IPv4 localhost to prevent a user
exposing an unsecured server to the Internet. When removing the
bind-address entry, make sure to set secure passwords across the whole
configuration file. Ideally refrain from changing any other options as
it's easy to get carried away and end up with a configuration that e.g.
prevents the server to start.
